Important Notice about Information You Provide Us With on Your Application

When making an application to us, you will give us certain personal data (such as your name, contact details etc), which we will hold as part of our administration of the awards event.  We may need to share those details with others (sponsors, judges, suppliers and contractors involved in the event).

By making an application (whether by yourself or through a third party) and participating in this event, you have given us consent to have your personal information published and used by MBKB in assessing your application, and then in connection with the awards event itself. Please note that we reserve the right to publishing images and promotional materials on our website and social media for up to 18 months post event.  

If you do not wish for any data, images, or materials to be used by us in this way, please do not submit an application, or confirm to us in writing immediately that your application is withdrawn.  If you permit us to consider your application, then it is reasonable of us to assume you are aware of our use of the data in this way, and that you have no objections in this regard.

If an application is made by a third party who nominates you, we are entitled to assume that the person submitting details on your behalf has your agreement to the submission of our details to us.

 

Personal Data – We are publishing nominated persons, winners and runners up as this is a public event and even if absent from the event you may be identified in publications – Names, Qualification, award own/classification. The Information supplied will also be shared with the event sponsors, local newspapers and other media, including by our own and via third party social media sites.

You can opt out of having your name published by opting out when you complete and accept the attendance/acceptance invitation.

Please note when making your application, this is a voluntary event, which does not create any contractual arrangement between us.  The event is designed to be a celebration of the work of MBKB and our apprentices, and no endorsement or otherwise is given to the entrants, nominees, shortlisted candidates for awards, or awards winners.  As such, neither we nor any sponsor, judge, supplier or contractor of ours engaged in the awards owe you any contractual or other obligation, duty, or entitlement.  

 

 

The awards process 

Applications are open to all MBKB apprentices, their Managers, Mentors and Employers.

All applications must be returned to us online by the closing date of 12th March 2020.

Applications will be short listed by MBKB senior team members and tutors, to provide up to 5 possible candidates per award.   The short list will be drawn up and each application will be considered fairly and impartially, and decisions made will be in MBKB’s absolute discretion.  No correspondence will be entered into on the process for and decisions relating to selecting candidates.

Shortlisted candidates will be analysed by our external professional panel of invited judges to decide a winner for each category and the overall winners.  Again, each shortlisted candidate’s application will be considered fairly and impartially, and decisions made will be in the judges’ absolute discretion.  No correspondence will be entered into on decisions relating to selecting candidates for awards.

Shortlisted Candidates will be notified by the 28th March 2020, with winners being announced on the evening of 30th April 2020.

At the Awards evening all candidates will be read out with names, programmes and employers detailed. The winning candidate will receive a short expression of why they were chosen (potentially using what their Employer/Learner said about them on their application). 

You must be available and eligible to attend the Awards evening.  If you are below the age of 18, you must attend with a guest who is 18 or over.

You may place as many applications as you wish. 

Applications for the awards are free of charge, with shortlisted applicants receiving a free ticket to attend the Awards evening, plus 1 additional ticket for their guest. 

Entries made in a language other than English will be accepted, but the judging panel may be dependent on a free translation service such as Google Translate and as such we cannot take any responsibility for any errors in translation by a third party.

Learners are required to accept awards either in person at the Awards evening or in absentia. Non-registration to attend the Awards evening itself, will entitle us to assume that the Learner wishes to graduate, and/or receive any award they are chosen for in absentia.

It is your responsibility to make sure we have the correct contact details for you.

Extra guest seating is subject to availability at a price of £35 per person, £300 for a table of 10.

In the event of a late registration to attend we cannot guarantee that there will be additional guest seating still available - please ensure you reply before the deadline date.

Tickets bought following the deadline date are non-refundable unless we cannot meet your request for extra guest tickets or you are not eligible to attend.

Application forms, orders and payments for all services other than the ceremony must be posted and paid directly to MBKB. We will not accept responsibility for forwarding post or payments. 

In the event that any or all of the Awards Presentation Ceremonies have to be cancelled, rescheduled or postponed due to circumstances beyond the control of MBKB, we cannot  be held responsible for any costs incurred by you or any other party by the said cancellations, rescheduling or postponement.

The name you enrolled with will appear on your transcript and award certificate.

We remind you that images and photographs taken at the awards event of you and your details (name, employer, award category) may be used in future promotional activities, if you do not give permission for this please ensure you inform MBKB in writing at award@mbkbgroup.com .

We will accept cancellations by email (but not by phone) and refund minus an administration cost of £20 per ticket. Less than 21 days before the event: We accept cancellations by email (but not by phone) but will be unable to offer a refund unless the ticket(s) are re-sold.
